The City of One Hundred Lakes
As one of China’s newest cities, Daqing benefits from wide, clean streets and pollution-free blue skies all year round. Its skyline is pierced by modern high-rise apartment blocks and the streets populated by restaurants offering food from the diverse cultures that make up the peoples of this region. Adding variety to the urban landscape are the many spectacular lakes which provide residents with beautiful open spaces to exercise, play sports and practice Tai Chi.
Daqing has two main seasons – summer and winter. In summer, the city is a baking hot sea of green, with trees and flowers blooming all over the city. During the day parks are packed with people enjoying the warmth and in the evenings young and old alike cool off in the lakes. In winter Daqing is covered by carpet of snow. The frozen lakes are open for ice-skating and the streets lined with ice sculptures that light up the night with coloured lights from within.
Sitting between Russia, Mongolia and North Korea the city is truly multi-cultural, with all the food that goes with it!
